The candidate for the post of Ukraine's prime minister and the makeup of the new Ukrainian government have been agreed upon by the country's Verkhovna Rada, the leader of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc "Solidarity" party, Yuriy Lutsenko, said on Wednesday.

KIEV (Sputnik) — On Sunday, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk announced his resignation starting April 12 amid the ongoing parliamentary crisis in the country.

"The candidate for the prime minister's post and the makeup of the government have been agreed on," Lutsenko wrote on his Facebook page.

On Tuesday, Poroshenko Bloc party member Oleksiy Honcharenko said that the party and its ally, the People’s Front, have secured the necessary number of votes to form a ruling coalition in the Ukrainian Parliament.

The Ukraine political crisis escalated in February, after the parliamentary faction aligned to Ukraine's president – the Petro Poroshenko Bloc – described the cabinet’s work in 2015 as unsatisfactory. The following day, Yatsenyuk’s government survived a no-confidence vote, which forced various factions to leave the ruling parliamentary coalition.

The Petro Poroshenko Bloc had previously nominated speaker of the Ukrainian parliament Volodymyr Groysman for the post of Prime Minister.
